HE IS RISEN! YES, HE IS RISEN INDEED!
This glorious truth becomes real for us if we accept the gift Christ offers with it. This truth is simple too. We accept Him as our Risen Lord and Savior. He fought the battle. We quit fighting and we surrender to His fight and accept His victory as ours (as mine). I am constantly reminded that the “new Earnie” is not from what I’ve done, but what I’ve accepted as the gift of Christ’s redeeming love. The other gift with this newness of life is the Gift of The Holy Spirit. This is the Spirit Christ anoints us with when we accept Him as Lord along with His being our Savior. I know all of this so well. I struggle to live as though I do from day to day.
Today is a glorious day. Let us rejoice and be glad in it! Have a wonderful Easter everyone!
